Arsene Wenger was pleased with Arsenal’s response following their opening day loss to Liverpool but did concede that there are issues in attacking areas.

The Gunners have their first point on the board after the 0-0 draw against champions Leicester and Wenger believes his side did try and go for all three throughout the tense affair.

“I think overall it was a good performance, a good match between two good teams. It was a game of top level intensity and I believe we responded well to last week’s disappointment,” said Wenger to BBC Sport.

“Leicester are a good team – they did not win the league and only lose three games last season for nothing. We had to fight until the end. We could have lost or won it in the last 20 minutes. We wanted to win the game and we finished with five attacking players on the pitch.”

Wenger added that he was happy with the chances created against Leicester and is optimistic that they will converted into goals as the season progresses.

“We made many chances against a team that defends very well,” Wenger claimed. “Overall we still lack a little bit in our decision making and in the final ball but that will come. It’s a positive game.”

On potential signings, Wenger simply said to BT Sport: “I’m a bit fed up to say the same thing, like we do not want to spend. We analyse everything and then make the right signings.”
